This is my entry into AO's Spring contest.... but I throught I'd share it here too.

As soon as I saw this scan I straight away throught of spring... so when this contest came around, this scan was the first thing I throught of using.
It's apartnetly from a new manga Clamp is writing, but I have no idea... but she sure looks like Sakura through doesn't she?
I used a stock photo for the BG *I suck at making clouds* and went brush mad over the top. A rather simple wall but I like it. Nice and light and airy, just like spring.

The title: Sekai wa Hajimari (which means "Beginning of the world") I used because spring is the beginning of so many things in the world... so yeah, plus I just like the sound of it :)

Anyway, hope you enjoy.

    Well, I love the flowers to the right. So bright and they contrast the softness of the rest of the piece. When checking the thumbnail, it looks like she's jumping as something behind her is exploding ^^ .

    She's so pretty, and has a very care-free look about her... I wish I knew who she is/was. I adore clamp and their love of flowers. It's so beautiful and bright... thanks for sharing :)

    beautiful picture. the colors are amazing. i like how you used warm colors for the ground and cool colors for the sky. good job! :)

    Yess, surprisingly, clamp whom we thtought would stop drawing after TRC comes back with Sekai wa Hajimari in shonen jump. So its apparently not about sakura, looks like a love story if i remember correctly what my sources told me +_+

    anyways~ niceh wall, im very happy to see new stuff, but im not sure if i like the PAM contrast between the blue sky and orange flowers, i would have thought reddish sky with huge sun :D but bleh, mid-day is much more spring-ish indeed

    I've read the first 4 chapther of Kobato and i really love the story.

    the most funny thing about the story, is the chobit-crossover, i mean, Kobato lives in the same apertment as Hedeki and Chii live ind, and Chii/Elda and Freya is back and they are so cute.
    Kobato is really good drawed, but that is what you can expect from Clamp so...

    Clamp-fanatic yeah XD
